‘Feeding Families 5K’ in Vienna Raising Thousands to Fight Food Insecurity

A 5K in the Town of Vienna has raised $6,000 so far to benefit people facing food insecurity.

Caffe Amouri and the Vienna Business Association (VBA) are hosting the Feeding Families 5K, which started on Friday, May 15. The VBA announced the latest donation amount in an email today (Tuesday).

The route winds from Caffe Amouri to Auto Body of Vienna, then to Plaka Grill over to Waters Field and then up to Skorpio’s Maggio’s Greek Family Restaurant before heading back to Caffe Amouri.

Participants who sign up will have until May 31 to run the route and turn in their results via email. Prize categories include “best time running” and “best time walking.”

All donations — including the registration fee — will buy food for families in need, according to the VBA.
